ADHD & Sleep: During the Holidays

Holiday Time ManagementChristmas_SM-300x200 ADHD & Sleep: During the Holidays - Play Attention

Can't get them to sleep because they're too wired during the holidays? It's important to take a few minutes at the end of the day to sit in a quiet spot and talk about how the day went. Take that same time to review the schedule for tomorrow. Remember, fewer surprises mean smoother days to an ADHD child. You can review the days schedule (both successes and failures) verbally and visually. Post successes on the fridge.

Doing this on a regular basis may seem a chore for both of you at first, but adhering to this will settle their minds for a full nights sleep and get them prepared for the following day. Additionally, it teaches them effective time management while helping you maintain your sanity!
